Ralphie JoyalMaine Event Comedy presents 20-year stand-up veteran Ralphie Joyal at Baxter Brewing, Friday, January 5 at 7 p.m. The show will also feature Colby Bradshaw, Nellie Coes, Mike Levinsky, and Nick Gordon.

Joyal hails from Tewksbury, Mass and recently released his first DVD “Tweaked to the Max”. His blue-collar brand of comedy includes stories of his childhood, marriage, holidays and weight struggles. He also performs dead-on celebrity impressions including Archie Bunker, Eddie Murphy, Tom Petty, and Forest Gump. Joyal has worked with international headliners Dane Cook, Bill Burr, and Joe Rogan.

Bradshaw’s charm and deadpan delivery earned him first place at Empire’s Comedy Winter Classic in Portland. He’s performed at The Stand and Gotham Comedy Club in New York City.

After competing against hundreds of moms throughout the country, Coes made it to the finals on Nick at Nite’s Funniest Mom Contest. She also works as a consultant for the advice site, DearFrannie.com.

Levinsky founded the weekly Portland Comedy Showcase and has played Portland House of Music and Comedy Studio in Cambridge, MA. His television credits include a $37 overcharge from Time Warner Cable.

New Gloucester’s Gordon has been winning audiences over with his self-deprecating brand of humor and recently competed in the Empire Comedy Classic in Portland.

The show is free and for ages 21-and-older. Baxter Brewing is located at 130 Mill Street, Lewiston. FMI call 207-513-0742 or email maineeventcomedy@gmail.com.
